"PARATHESI(QUOTE)" is images on geometric kites that urge contemplation on the various events that can lead to the "doomsday" crisis. They are inspired by John's of Patmos "Apocalypse". The four riders are symbolising Conquest, War, Famine, and Death. They are used to refer as agents to phenomena of imminent catastrophe, events involving destruction or damage on a catastrophic scale. The messengers of this apocalyptic revelation are described as angels. Doomed to this fate are the people who with their actions disclosed the revelation.

revelation12:1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun ,and the moon was under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.

The anthropogenic scenarios that can bring human extinction include global nuclear annihilation, a total global war, overpopulation, a global accidental pandemic and the ecological collapse and catastrophic climate change. An "engineered pathogen" is also possible.
Without appropriate regulation the current scientific advancement increases the risk of human extinction as a result of the effect or misuse of new technology. The combination of inventiveness and the history of violence in humans is evidence against its long term survival.
The competition by greed for wealth and power can also have the outcome of global war conflicts and can eventually unleash worldwide famine.
To describe human extinction scenario as result of human action is to claim it is consequence from deliberate choices made by human beings. Such scenarios are preventable and people whose choices make them happen should be held accountable.
